Galatasaray say they have hired former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini to replace Fatih Terim as coach.
Galatasaray said in a statement on their website on Monday that Mancini signed a three-year contract and will be paid 3.5 million euros for the upcoming season, with his salary upped to 4.5 million euros for the next two campaigns.
Mancini has reportedly requested a clause allowing him to leave the Turkish club if he is offered an opportunity to manage the Italian national team. Galatasaray have agreed to the condition.
Terim's contract was terminated by the club last week after he rejected a two-year extension.
One of Turkey's best known coaches, Terim last month started his third stint as manager of Turkey's national team.
Galatasaray play Juventus on Wednesday in the Champions League.
